We got a message not so long ago from our good friendBig Kev, of a show you might remember, Big Kev’s Geek Stuff, now far flung years into the future with Geek Stuff: TNG (@GeekStuffTNG) – and a conversation about Solo broke out.
You see, Rob and I have mixed opinions on Solo… was it good? Was it good enough? Was it just nostalgic pablum?
The battle lines have been drawn… on the Somethingside, myself and Rob. On the side of the defense, we have not only Big Kev, but actor and long time friend of the Somethings and New Jersey actor Erik A.
So settle in and make your opinions known – it’s time for a Something In Review: REDUX
Not everybody likes everything.. I mean, Hatton goes out of his way to watch Asylum Films, and Podcast Rob enjoys Kiss. Sometimes, people can’t help it.
Well, if we’re going to be talking about Hot Takes on things, we needed two friends to come join in the party – so we got fellow ACPN.NET posse, Kevin Gootee and Kevin Israel, the hosts of Gutting The Sacred Cow to hang out and take down some big opinions.
Take a listen – agree – disagree – and then head over to their show and tell them we sent you.
We talk Star Wars, DC, Die Hard, and a whole lot more… Ready to fight?
What’s going on all – the Somethings are on vacation, but that doesn’t mean you get to be…
What it does mean is that we are diving into the bin of episodes you’ve never heard and popping out with something cool. The only reason I’m mentioning it is that this episode was recorded quite a bit ago. If you are wondering why we’re not social distancing – there’s your reason.
That said – it is going to drive by you at 1.21ghz – we are talking about the things in movies that are the unsung heroes.. the vehicles the heroes drive. From big muscle cars to tricked out sci-fi contraptions, we are about to talk about cars that get you from place A to place B in style or are so cool the whole movie is about them.
If there is one actor in Hollywood that has had a ton of jobs… it’s Tom Cruise, hell it is one of the defining character traits of his early career. ‘Ah, this is the one where Tom Cruise is a patent lawyer’ ‘Ohh, the one where Tom Cruise is the air conditioner repairman?’ ‘I never saw the one where Tom Cruise was a circus clown for the mob.’
So, the Somethings have taken it upon themselves to look at Mr. Cruise’s resume and list off some of their favorite jobs that he has had.
Set your E-Meter to Clear, we’re on Cruise Control…
Sometimes, the Somethings need a little cultural – and given that normally they are as cultured as a strep throat test, they need to bring in the big guns.
Joining the boys this week is the long-time friend of the show, Meredith Placko – host, geek of all colors, and one half of the model paint powerhouse TurboDork. One of her nerddom dujours is historical fashion – so it felt like she was the prime candidate as we get down and discuss Period Films.
So get yourself some absinthe, a powdered wig, a ten pound bag of boning, and get ready to talk about the past!
It is a new year – and what does that mean? Tons and tons of websites with lists about what the best of 2019 was… well we’re not doing it. We’re going to start the new decade looking forward at the movies that are to come.
From the obvious to the surreal, join PCR and Hatton as they talk about some of the movies and trends that they are expecting to look forward to, or are at least hoping to not hate.
Let’s get this decade underway with the first time I get to say
For the first time ever, this episode was recorded LIVE on Twitch – and you can be here for next great live adventure November 5th@ 9pm – simply go to twitch.tv/somethingsomethingcast and make sure to follow us so you don’t miss out.
There are some great stories out there connected to movies… from ghosts on the set to mishaps to unintentional Easter Eggs – when the final product comes out, we get to see 2 hours of edited and poured over movies… but what goes into them is months of work… some craziness is bound to occur.
Rob and Hatton sat down and talked about some of their favorite unintentional movie mysteries so big that they became urban legends.
To start us off on our month of haunting spectaculars is heading back to the well of horror. We’ve talked franchises, we’ve talked villains, we’ve talked horror battle royale – but we’ve never out and out just talked about our favorite horror movies.
So this week, Podcast Rob and Hatton are grabbing their masks, their machetes, their chainsaws, and their sexy sexy costumes and getting ready to spend an hour jawing about their favorite scary flicks.
The Summer has come to an end, sadly. With that goes the big summer popcorn slinging monster cost movies that seem to bring in not just the bacon, but the whole damn pig farm.
Rob & Hatton have talked at ends about some of their favorite movies, of which quite a few were blockbusters of the Summer, but they have never settled in and simply talked about Summer Blockbusters as a concept.
So without further blather, please – get your sunscreen on, a giant tub of popcorn, the bag of sour patch kids you heisted in your back pocket, your wheelbarrow full of soda, and lets get to talking about some of the biggest movies money can buy.
